Extension of the period of stay – ERASMUS+ student mobility for studies 2017/2018

Students who decide to continue their studies at the University abroad for the following semester, are required to apply (e-mail) to the Faculty/Departmental ECTS Coordinator at the Home Institution for consent on prolongation of study period, regardless if they were initially enrolled for the Winter semester alone or for the whole academic year (Erasmus + SMS / Erasmus+ with PO WER funding).

Extension to the period of study abroad are only available within the time frame of the same academic year, and possible upon consent of two institutions: the Home Institution and the Host Institution, after all the required documents are submitted. The University of Lodz holds a pool of funds to cover the grants of participants who prolong their study mobility.
